UPDATE: Mets announced that Pedro Feliciano has been added to the 40 man roster and will join the team to replace the DL bound Josh Edgin. Feliciano, 36, has retired all six batters he has faced — four lefties, two righties — over three appearances since the promotion from Binghamton to Las Vegas. Overall, Feliciano has made 22 appearances as he continues his rehab, and in 21.0 innings pitched he has a 1.29 ERA while allowing just 14 […]
In case you were wondering, left-hander Pedro Feliciano continues to make strides since his promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas last week. The veteran reliever is maintaining his higher velocity and getting the job done out of the bullpen for the 51s. Feliciano has retired all six batters he has faced — four lefties, two righties — over three appearances since the promotion from Binghamton to Las Vegas, reports Adam Rubin. Overall, Feliciano has made 22 appearances […]
It’s almost unfair. To watch Pedro Feliciano work a pitchers mound against young Double-A batters is to watch a master craftsman applying his craft to a gaggle of apprentices. Feliciano defines what it means to pitch, not to throw a baseball. The former workhorse of the major league Mets, the 36-year old lefthanded relief specialist is working to prove he still has something left, something that could matter at the big league level. So far, […]
Welcome to MMN Storylines, where you get a quick wrap-up of last night’s top performers.. Our first-round pick in the ’13 Draft, Dominic Smith, hit his first professional home run last night. It was part of a three hit game, where he went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Smith and Wuilmer Becerra both had nice games, with Becerra going 2-for-4 with two doubles. Daniel Muno probably went ahead and had the best game for all Mets Minor League players last night, […]
Pedro Feliciano is gaining traction at Double-A Binghamton where he pitched another perfect inning for them in last night’s 6-5 win over Salt Lake. For the veteran lefthander, it was his third perfect inning in three appearances since being promoted from Advanced-A St. Lucie where he first began playing in rehab games. Feliciano, who was signed to a minor league contract by the Mets in February, has been attempting to come back from left shoulder […]
I was gratified to read Sandy Alderson’s recent comments regarding a strategic shift in the Mets’ front office. Specifically, his statement to the effect that he feels that it would be worthwhile for the team to begin to add established major league talent to supplement the roster indicates to me that major decisions have been made with respect to the limitations of the organization in its present state. When trying to assess the strategy of […]
Updated by Joe D. at 10:45 PM Jack Leathersich is freaking unbelievable. He just struck out the side tonight in the ninth inning for Binghamton. His last nine outs have all been Ks and he now has 27 strikeouts in his last 12 innings pitched. For the season, Leathersich has 48 strikeouts in 25.1 innings pitched. Back in January I compared him to Billy Wagner in an interview I did with him. He laughed and […]
Lefty reliever Scott Rice tossed two scoreless innings to pick up the win against the Cubs on Sunday. It was his major league-leading 25th appearance of the season. Rice lowered his ERA to 3.05, and is now on pace for 99 appearances. That would surpass Pedro Feliciano‘s franchise mark of 92 games in 2010 and rank second all-time to Mike Marshall‘s 106 appearances for the Dodgers in 1974. That is one heck of a workload to say the least, and […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas edged out Round Rock, 3-2. Binghamton dropped to Trenton, 5-1. St. Lucie blasted Daytona, 13-3. Savannah topped Hickory, 9-6. Prospect Pipeline It was supposed to be an epic matchup of top pitching prospects in Trenton, between the B-Mets and the Trenton Thunder yesterday — the Double-A version of the Subway Series. Rafael Montero was on the hill for Binghamton, while Jose Ramirez took the hill for Trenton. If you look […]
